Stem Cells and Prostate Inflammation. Prostatitis is an inflammation of the prostate gland that can result from a bacterial infection. It affects at least half of all men at some point. Having this condition does not increase your risk of another prostate disease.

Common symptoms of the vast majority of prostate infections include difficulty urinating, pain or burning during urination, and abdominal pain. Additionally, there may be pain between the scrotum and rectum. Other symptoms may include painful ejaculation, lumbago, urgent need to urinate, and blood in the urine.

Stem Cell and Prostate Cancer Study

A study published in the journal Nature states that researchers found epithelial stem cells in the prostate gland. These cells may explain some forms of this type of cancer and offer new ways to treat the disease in the future.

These results also show a potential new source of prostate tumors, which secrete various compounds in the prostate. Helen Rippon, Ph.D., of the UK charity Prostate Cancer, said, “The role of stem cells in the development of this cancer has been a topic of discussion for many years.

Most importantly, this new stem cell does not depend on androgens – the male sex hormones that control prostate growth – to survive and grow. This would help explain why prostate cancer often becomes resistant to treatments designed to regulate these androgens in advanced stages. This knowledge is a step forward in understanding how we can help prevent the disease from developing in men.”


Michael Sheen and colleagues from Columbia University Medical Center named the new stem cells “CARN.” These cells normally regenerate part of the tissue that covers the inside of the gland, which produces semen. However, these cells can form tumors if certain genes that control uncontrolled growth are deactivated.

Stem Cells and Prostate Inflammation

Sheen stated that researchers believed tumors appeared through another layer of prostate cells called basal cells before this discovery. Previous research suggests that prostate cancer originates from basal stem cells, and during cancer formation, these cells differentiate into luminal cells. “In contrast, CARN cells would represent a luminal origin of prostate cancer,” Sheen added. Prostate tumors are the second most common cancer in men, causing 254,000 deaths worldwide each year.

Treating Stem Cells and Prostate Inflammation

Stem cell treatment is based on a cellular regeneration system in which young cells with specific functions in organs directly attack damaged or weakened cells, aiming to restore vitality and stimulate their proper functioning.

With stem cell treatment, you can:

Reduce difficulty or delay in starting urination. Decrease the need to urinate two or more times at night. Eliminate post-micturition dribble.

Stem Cells help:

Stimulate prostate cells to reduce inflammation. Contribute to better erection and ejaculation. Alleviate pain in the side, back, or abdomen.
